Krishnagar, Nov. 10: Armed robbers last night stormed into the Krishnagar municipality office and decamped with Rs 7 lakh — the third heist at a civic body in three days.
On Thursday, the civic office at Baruipur was looted, while on Friday, it was the turn of the Barrackpore municipality.
According to police, a group of 10 ordered the night guards of the Krishnagar municipality to open the door. “Five of them were masked. As I refused to hand over the keys, they gagged us and tied our hands and legs,” said Tabu Mohan, a guard.
